Later in September, a pair of parking areas in the Playhouse District will be reconfigured for one day into makeshift gathering spots featuring art, food and music.
It's all to celebrate the international event of PARK(ing) Day, where "artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks."
PARK(ing) Day falls on Sept. 20, and according to the city, the "temporary parklets on both the north and south sides of Colorado Boulevard between El Molino and Oak Knoll. One will be outside of Vroman’s Bookstore and Zeli’s Coffee Bar where the one-day parklet will showcase local artists and musicians. The other can be found outside of Yahaira’s Café at Arcade Lane where they will be serving sangria (non-alcoholic), iced tea and quesadillas from their parklet dining space."
The city also notes that contributions from La Loma Landscaping, Cal Poly Pomona Landscape Architecture students and the Playhouse District Association will add to the event.
PARK(ing) Day will be Sept. 20, from noon to 4 p.m.
